Hmmm I'm wondering which century it was when you changed your name, from Methuselah to Simon.

An additional entry for the GB

Post  S P Hammerton on Sun Aug 14, 2011 7:09 pm

Greetings and Salutations Folks

At our recent club meeting, I picked up a Revell (Italeri re-box) Crusader MkIII for a stupidly low price.

So, if time allows, I'm also going to build...

Bronco 17pdr MkI Anti-Tank gun with Bronco 17pdr crew.
Crusader Gun Tractor using the Accurate Armour Gun Tractor conversion set.

That way I can hop between the two.

Simon

Hi Pavel

Nice model, though the smaller parts have huge attachment points.

I used a Pyro to remove them safely.

Thanks SP. Not sure about the SPG, the tracks look like they might need replacing, though I need to be as O.O.T.B. as possible due to finances. I also have slightly more than zero references.

If you go for the S.Fh18, I'd suggest you look at Terry's review on PMMS, because the instructions are the typical DML minefield.

Fear not SP, I read that even before I bought it. My plan is to have the page open ALL the time Im working on it! Ive not built any recent Dragons (the ones I have are mostly several years old) so I looked at the instructions last night. But the ones for the Flak 36 are even more confusing! Jimminy Cricket, is it too much to ask for a bit more info about what goes where for whichever option? I dont actually have a selection of preserved WWII weapons to climb over to check the details.

I've got the DML Tiger I w/Zimmerit in the stash, and it's the ONLY Dragon kit I've seen where they tell you what bits go with each decal options.

I guess its a good thing that no "experts" usually see my finished models then to give me grief over all the mistakes Very Happy

Grief over mistakes?

Post  Frank on Tue Sep 27, 2011 4:17 pm

You and me both! I've learned to go agonizingly slow, scrutinizing my work on each step down to the most idiotically miniscule detail.

Im kinda lucky in having no friends into the hobby. None of them who look at what Ive done have any idea what theyre looking at so they dont know if its good or bad. Occasionally someone might say "But I thought blah, blah, blah...", but theyre almost always wrong tongue
